I apologize for the inconvenience.<br /> <br /> Creator's Note: I heard this version of "Sounds of Silence" by Disturbed, and that song evoked an emotion and that emotion in me helped in the creation of this tribute video. While I wish all of the images were high resolution....some images of that day were caught with low quality equipment and the images I chose all seemed to fit with how I was feeling. I witnessed the events of this day like many of us did and it changed me forever. It will always feel fresh in my mind and feel like it happened yesterday. Having experienced such a tragic day....your outlook on so many world events changes. It is amazing how divided the world seems right now but how unified we all were after the events of 9/11....<br /> <br /> Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

As was discussed at length in Commissioners’ Court yesterday, we were able to get overtime funds approved to make sure that my deputies are fairly compensated for overtime work.<br /> <br /> "For Law Enforcement, we are having to reallocate funds already budgeted for the Sheriff’s Office to ensure our employees are fairly compensated while remaining within our current budget. For the Adult Detention Center, we are utilizing monies set aside and made possible due to current vacancies. These monies are then paid out as overtime worked by deputies to keep us in compliance with Jail Standards.<br /> <br /> "We are about to go in to contract negotiations with the Deputy Sheriff’s Association of Bexar County and my number one priority is to get higher compensation for my deputies. This will allow us to retain deputies already on staff, while attracting the best qualified applicants without compromising our high standards for employment.<br /> <br /> "As the person who was entrusted with this office by the people of Bexar County, I cannot in good conscience accept a pay raise at a time where my deputies are concerned as to whether their hard work will be compensated. Leaders eat last."
